Auto-Classification in SharePoint

Metadata is essential for findability, yet the vast majority of content within organizations has poor metadata. Creating metadata is challenging, and doing it by machine is the only practical way to get consistent, quality metadata on a broad basis. SharePoint provides a facility for referencing and managing metadata called the Managed Metadata Service (MMS). The BA Insight AutoClassifier leverages this to provide a rules-based engine fully integrated with SharePoint. This paper discusses the need for Metadata and demonstrates how to use the AutoClassifier and MMS to create metadata and improve findability.
